Rarely does a classic of this pedigree come on the market in such upgraded and well-maintained condition and at such a bargain price.

'Agape' was hauled out and in storage in a Lloyds approved cradle in Nanny Cay Marine in the British Virgin islands during hurricane Irma in 2017 and received minor damages. In December of 2018, a well-known cruiser and very experienced marine surveyor who is also an experienced yachtsman, undertook a four month, $100k+ refit which included not just replacing the mast with a factory original Hood in-mast furling spar and re-rigging the boat, but encompassed a complete renovation of the majority of her systems and an updating of the vessels' DC systems to contemporary standards which included a large solar array, all new batteries and a modern wireless monitoring system.

Also completed was a faring and some non-hurricane related renovations to her bottom as deemed appropriate and a major servicing of the drive train and engine and bow thruster undertaken, and the port side of the hull was touched up and clear coated, and so that the flag blue hull looks fabulous.

With her powerful engine and efficient, easy to handle sail plan, 'Agape' is a joy to experience underway. Below decks she is sumptuous and elegant with private accommodations for six to eight and a galley that is both easy to work in underway and is well out of the traffic flow with more than adequate counterspace and storage.

Never mind that she receives compliments everywhere she goes, the best thing is how an Alden sails! Certainly a head turner, and likely one of the most beautiful American yacht designs ever built, the Alden 50 without a doubt sits firmly at the very pinnacle of quality of construction as well. A once in a lifetime type of vessel that was custom built in 1990 , to the tune of (adjusted for inflation) $1.3 Million. With her incredible solid wood cabinetry and highest quality hardware, this is vessel that would be difficult to impossible to reproduce today. She has crossed the Atlantic three times, sailed around the world and made multiple passages between the east coast of the US and the Caribbean islands.

Offered at the lower end of the range of what these vessels ever sell for, the owner is interested in a quick sale, and she is ready to sail immediately do any destination you choose.
